Laugh in the sunshine

The band pulled off an extraordinary Bird Song down in the Crescent City back in 1980. I love the Saenger Theater acoustic sets, particularly 10/19/80. They really jam this one out. The sound quality is a bit sketchy. Still, if you have not heard this one...

I always wondered why Garcia raved about this run and I can hear a looseness and risk-taking in their playing that is missing in the Warfield shows which sound excellent, but more like studio run-throughs for the live album. Still, it is sometimes hard to hear exactly what is so unique here - was it the crowd, the hall, all these things add up to a GD show and it is so hard to get that across on a tape or cd or internet stream. Still the recording at least highlights the fun everyone had here, band included...
